  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

Can the LR local adjustment presets for brush and/or gradients Effect be migrated or converted to be used for the Adobe Camera Raw Local Corrections presets?

It looks like the Lightroom local adjustment presets are file type .lrtemplate and the ACR Local Correction presets are file type .xmp

Hi David, welcome to the forum!

One easy way would be to apply the preset to a brush stroke, write the metadata to the file and then open the photo in ACR, select the brush stroke and save a local adjustment preset.

Thank you.

Just curious... do you know why ACR does not have any default local correction presets similar to LR default local effect presets?

The target audience is a bit different. Camera Raw is more bare bones utilitarian than Lightroom.
